Driving Myself Crazy

So, thought I would just pop in and do a little updating.

I am driving myself crazy with this Nativity cross stitch project.  I am just way to obsessed with it.  I worked on it for a while last night, went to work on it more today only to find that I had done a whole section with the wrong color.  I just left it.  I know that in the end, it will change the design's look a little bit, but I really didn't care.  I mean come on, the dark peach looks like light rust, the light peach looks more like a medium peach, the pale peach looks tan.  So shoot me, I mixed up the peaches.  It is the small amount of skin on one hand. Granted it is Mary, we are talking about, it just isn't going to matter.

Also, yesterday I answered an ad on Craig's list for a Christmas stocking cross stitch kit.  She had started it, but not stitched very much yet.  I was happy to get it.  Now, my only dilemma is trying to figure out how to classify the project.  Is it a new start for me?  I didn't really start it, although there is a very small portion of Santa's hat that she has worked on.
This what it will look like finished.  Why do they always have to have the stocking with the toes facing that way.  All other stockings the toes face the other direction. At any rate, here is what the project looks like at the moment.
It is the garland he is carrying. So, let me know what you think.

I have to decide whether to classify this item as a UFO to count when I finish it. Or count it as a current item then just count the finish, or count it as a WIP, or since I haven't done anything with it yet, will I count it as a new start.

Promised you it would be short.  Just leave me a comment If you like.  Thank you for the visit and come back soon.


  1. I'd say it's a new start! :-D

  2. I agree new start. I've only seen stocking with the toe going that way. Maybe ready-made is going the other way to be a secret code to stitchers that it's not hand stitched,LOL! Good luck!
